the cell phone network. a spokesperson for the israeli army is under fire after appearing online in black face. scott mcgrew says it is a startling misstep for an organization that has been tech savvy until now. >> we were talking about how the israeli defense force was using twitter and youtube and facebook to generate support in ways that we had never seen before during war time. but this picture is doing just the opposite. this is idf spokesperson on facebook. he smeared his face with mud and he has written the caption "obama style." he has since taken his facebook pictures private. one commenter asked if it is appropriate to mock the president of the united states considering how much money the u.s. sends to israel. some context here. this picture was apparently taken at the dead sea some months ago and based on some comments, it's fairly common
11:16am
practice, apparently, to cake yourself with mud as a therapeutic practice. it is a reference to president obama that turns the critic from muddy to black face. black face is a practice, at least in america is racist. we are not talking about any israeli soldier. this is the spokesperson for the army. supposedly a social media expert. he is one of the team doing the tweets and facebook posts. says the idf uses social media for the support for the fight against hamas. back to you. strange story. christina loren is back here to tell us it will be wet and you better be ready. >> that's right, jon and marla. make sure i get it right. i get so excited when the storms approach. what i can tell you is, in my two years of meteorology here in the san francisco bay area, i have never seen a run of storms
11:17am
like we're expecting over the next few days. every time i check, we're right on time. you see the storm clouds rolling in to san francisco. still about 24 hours away from significant moisture moving into the south bay. we will see the showers push into the north bay. even san francisco as of 4:00 a.m. we have a lot of rain and wind on the way to the bay area. for today, mostly cloudy skies. 66 in livermore. 64 in santa teresa. you will hit 64 in fremont. the breeze will pick up through tonight. strong winds during the commute tomorrow. the jet stream is taking a significant dip to the south. that opens up the storm window. the jet stream is a conveyer belt that takes the storm system from west to east across the united states. as long as it stays put of the south bay area, we are hit with the storm systems. 2 to 5 inches of rain, wednesday
11:18am
through sunday. upwards of 6 inches possible. tropical-storm force gusts. that could be a problem with the trees and the saturated ground. we could see a very serious situation when it comes to the commute. we will be here to cover it for you. 4:00 a.m. wednesday is when the front will come in. the front will come in from the north bay and slowly work to the south. this front will come in completely vertically. as you can see here, everywhere in the bay area, starting to get wet at 4:00 a.m. the bulk of the moisture arrives between 4:00 a.m. and noon. we will get a little bit of a break. an opportunity to dry out, but not for long. heavy rain returns to the north bay at noon on thursday. san jose, we wait until thursday night to get our significant rainfall. between thursday and friday, we have a very potent storm system. if you commute to work on friday, heavy pockets of moisture coming down over the greater bay area. san jose, we are expecting
11:19am
significant totals. 3.5 inches. 5 inches in places of the bay area. this is what is really interesting to me. to get close to 5 inches of rain in san francisco over the course of four to five days, it is impressive. our highways are not equipped to take this rain. what you can do to prepare yourself is go ahead and clear out the storm drains at your home. if you can help your neighbors, that will help the situation as we accumulate so much rain over such a short duration of time as we get into the weekend. here is a very optimistic look at things. we will see such a high surf, it is possible friday and saturday morning, for the mavericks. we will keep our eye on that and let you know. back to you, jon and marla. thanks. there may now be a different reason to fear the beard. this is because the next time
11:20am
brian wilson pitches at at&t park, it could be in a different uniform. the chronicle reports this could be wilson's last week as a san francisco giant. the closer with the wild facial hair will become a free agent if the giants don't hand him a contract by friday. the chronicle reports the giants want to sign wilson but, the team doesn't want to offer him a $6.8 million guarantee for 2013. wilson missed most of the 2012 season for a second tommy john surgery. let's see what happens on that. coming up at 11:00, are you a target for breast cancer because of where you live? the surprising survey of bay area counties. and on the surface, they look like any other high school football team, but this bay area team has a very inspirational story behind it.

11:23am
bay area breast cancer rates are on the rise according to a new study released overnight. it is not just marin county that s is a concern. portions of san mateo and alameda counties had breast cancer rates that were 10% to 20% higher than the state average from 2000 to 2008. higher rates in sonoma county as well. it is long been known breast cancer risk factors are higher income women or women taking hormone replacements. there are higher income women living in the bay area, but this
11:24am
is a correlation, not a direct cause. if you are a woman living in the bay area, what do you make of the study? just to use it as more reason to practice good breast care. >> great information. thanks a lot. when we return, they may not be able to hear the game, but they can certainly play it and play it very well. we will tell you about the local high school football team that is up for a prestigious award. we will tell you about that coming up next.
